Alvin Gentry Rumors
Injuries and illness had a clear impact on Tuesday’s slate of NBA preseason games. And that was just among coaches. New Orleans coach Alvin Gentry missed his team’s game against Atlanta with stomach discomfort, and Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer — already wearing a sling after undergoing surgery on his right hand Monday — left that matchup when Pelicans guard Langston Galloway knocked him over while attempting to save a loose ball. The good news is that neither is expected to miss time when the games start counting for real next week.
Scott Kushner: Gentry said he’s unsure how severe Anthony Davis’ ankle sprain is. He has not yet spoken to trainers about it.
Lin was highly intrigued about the possibility of teaming up with Pelicans star Anthony Davis and playing for Alvin Gentry in New Orleans’ D’Antoni-inspired offense, sources said. But the Pelicans weren’t willing pay what the Nets were, paving the way for Lin’s return to New York.
